Child Amputees Learn to Handle Teasing and Bullying at War Amps Western Seminar

SASKATOON, SK, July 15, 2012 /CNW/ - Growing up with an amputation can be challenging, from dealing with staring, teasing and bullying, to the frustrations of not being able to take part in an activity or keep up with peers.  That is why The War Amps Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program is built on the Winner's Circle philosophy, which encourages young amputees to accept their amputations and develop a positive approach to challenges.

Child amputees from across the western provinces will have the opportunity to talk about these issues and get practical solutions from older Champs in an open-forum session today at 9 a.m. in the Centre Ballroom of Saskatoon's Sheraton Cavalier Hotel, 612 Spadina Crescent East.  Media are welcome to attend this session, or interviews can be arranged at any time.

The War Amps 2012 Western Child Amputee (CHAMP) Seminar winds up today following this session.
